Well, yes, I remember lots of developers and random hangers-on
complaining about it when it was being discussed, but my experience
since GNOME 2 came out is that people actually *using* it for the
first time don't complain about -- or even notice -- that change,
because it just works.

OK, so there's actually an accessibility-related reason for not having
it there by default. Interesting.
